I would say weight in the back, How old are your shocks? If there are really bad that might help ya alil.

Shocks brand new, weight in the back might help, you guys think? Do the trucks do this? I would think my X has more weight in the back than a truck?

Thank you Skydog

for weight in the back use railroad track, you can just set strips in the bed of your truck (secured of course) or you can make yourself a nifty loft under your truck so you can slide them in, which works better because 1. you can put more under there (more weight), 2. it takes up no bed space..... Also depends on what kind of tires your running...

I have a add a leaf to the front. And i am lifting the back 1.5" But did not matter. Did it before and still does it after. Any pics?? It sucks can not even give her the gas it starts to hop so bad it will break something.

Buddy, did not even put them in yet, just the front springs. Truck does/did this bone stock.

THANK YOU Skydog P.S. No blocks in the front at all.

ok lets look at this a different way have you checked the spring center bolt to see that its not loose/broken/cracked that kinda thing also i would check the u bolts to see if they still have the proper torque on them and last check the shocks/mounts. now i hope this works im running out of ideas

I am running 4" blocks and no traction bars and no issue with wrap... There has got to be something else going on there?
